Bella Hadid’s outfit for the Coperni fashion show during Paris Fashion Week 2022 wasn’t finished until mid-show. Hence it is when viewers witness it in front of them. Three men encircled the 25-year-old model as she walked down the runway.

The man paints a white layer of latex over her. At the same time, she stood still, wearing lingerie and heels. She then walked off the catwalk. She was wearing a mid-length dress with off-the-shoulder sleeves that they had worked hard to make.
The company is no stranger to DIY fashion. Earlier this year, a hand-blown glass bag that celebrities like Doja Cat were carrying on red carpets garnered more attention for the company. Like the on-stage garment, Coperni’s glass purses have an intriguing design process.
The firm is probably most known for its Swipe handbag. According to designers Breanna Box and Peter Dupont, the bag is by an air hose. He spoke to i-D. Manel Torres, Ph.D., was the creator of the spray-on fabric. And the other experts surrounded Hadid to bring the concept to life at the fashion show in the Salle des Textiles at the Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris.

Arnaud Vaillant states, “They wanted to dedicate this moment to Dr. Torres since they admire what he does. To them, that makes the experience even more amazing. They thought that it was essential that he led the performance.”
Statement by Gigi Hadid
When asked about her experience at the 2022 Met Gala in May, Gigi Hadid said she used to feel pressure. But she can now “take a lot of burden off” and enjoy walking the carpet.
Before she arrived at the hotel on Met Day, she explained, “we spend a lot of time — creating the dress and with my glam team — figuring out the creative element.”
“By Met Day rolls around, they are simply living, listening, and dancing to music. But she is always late, 20 minutes before it starts to get a little stressful. She tries to avoid being late, yet she is.”
Riccardo Tisci of Burberry created her Met Gala ensemble earlier this year. Yet it was still distinctly Bella’s. We also wanted to make sure that it kept Riccardo very straightforward but chic, added Hadid.
The subject of the Met Gala
The subject of the upcoming Met Gala, “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty,” will be based on the creations of the late designer Karl Lagerfeld. It will include designs he created throughout his lengthy fashion career for brands. Then it includes Balmain, Patou, Chloé, Fendi, Chanel, and his label.
